Change Of Plans
Though Payday 2's listed release date on Steam used to be August 27 up to this point, there's been a change of plans. Apparently, the heist will go down earlier than expected. Come Tuesday 13th, Payday will officially be released on Steam, according to a new blog update at the game's Steam community pages.
Payday 2 is currently in beta, available to anyone who pre-purchases the Career Criminal Edition. I've tried the game out, my preview is already up. Expect a review to come your way very soon after launch.
